The world-renowned museum's Bicycle Passage will once again be turned into a temporary club on ADE's Friday.
After recent announcements on ADE Sound Lab and ADE Dance & Brands, it is time for exciting news for a one-off show in the city centre.
On ADE's Friday, a unique performance by one of electronic music’s legendary acts, Underworld will take place in the world-renowned Rijksmuseum. In this one-off free event, orchestrated by Audio Obscura, the museum’s iconic Bicycle Passage will provide the backdrop for the band’s live show.
This will be a rare opportunity to see the group up close and personal as the space is transformed into an intimate club venue, playing host to a limited crowd of music lovers. Following on from last year’s ADE event in the same space, the show provides a platform for the museum to engage with new and exciting audiences, enabled by Audio Obscura’s mission of bringing dance music artists to historic and cultural venues.
In addition, Underworld will present a keynote talk at this year’s ADE. This will be a chance to hear the band’s Rick Smith and Karl Hyde in conversation, as they explore the importance and power of partnership and co-production in the development and presentation of projects grand and intimate in the 21st century. The talk will be accompanied by visuals curated by one of Underworld’s closest partners, tomato’s Simon Taylor.
